Chance to Dance

All  of year 3 have started their exciting Chance to Dance programme with a visit to the Thameside Theatre to see professional ballet dancers from The Royal Ballet in action before starting their regular lessons with one of the dancers. The programme is part of Woodside's partnership with The Royal Opera House, which has established extensive training and backstage facilities in Thurrock. Children not only have lessons with professional dancers and musicians but get the chance to see a live ballet at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden and to audition for continued training as possible ballet dancers of the future. We have been running Chance to Dance at Woodside for some years and a number of children still have lessons in Covent Garden thanks to this opportunity.
